So here are a few brief thoughts from a perfect October Saturday of college football ...
1. Having watched a good chunk of Notre Dame-Purdue, and a lot of highlights from Indiana-Penn State, I've come to a conclusion: Indiana's even money right now to retain the Old Oaken Bucket.
2. Wisconsin is the best team in the Big Team by several nautical miles.
3. Oklahoma vs. Ball State was not just a monumental mismatch. It was two entirely different football cultures -- and one more argument for a re-structuring of college football into two divisions: Semi-Pro and Actual College Football.
4. It's now Saint Xavier and everybody else in the Mid-States Football Association.
5. The rest of the season is just a long buildup to the only game that matters now: LSU-Alabama.
